Simple, Thoughtful Meal Idea

A few weeks ago, my husband was in Dallas for a work trip and my son wasn't feeling well. I'm definitely known in the family as the parent who can handle minor illnesses, but as soon as it gets a little more challenging, you might want to check in with dad.

Overall, we managed to have a good week, but it was hard. My two other children had schedules to keep and my son who wasn't feeling well needed lots of TLC.

A dear friend from church asked if I could stop by her house before or after I picked up my kids from school one day that week. I parked in her driveway and she came out of her front door with this box. I looked down inside and tears filled my eyes.

I wasn't expecting a meal, but it's just what I needed. I was tired from a long week and now I had dinner for my family. I was even going to have something nice in the refrigerator for my husband when he arrived home later that night.

As you can see, my friend included spaghetti and meatballs (all in one jar), pasta, salad, rolls, and jelly. There was also a fragrant flower from her yard and an encouraging book for me to borrow.

It was simply perfection.
